Dwell Appoints New Editor-in-Chief (posted 11/13)
Dwell magazine has a new editor-in-chief. The independent shelter magazine said that Sam Grawe, a 29-year-old who joined the publication in 2000 as an editorial assistant, takes over the position beginning today. Grawe, who most recently served as executive editor, replaces Allison Arieff, who left in August amid a staff reorganization that promoted two senior editors to executive editor positions and expanded the role of the publication’s managing editor.
The six-year-old title, which last year posted a profit for the first time, plans to increase its frequency from nine to 10 issues next year and will increase its rate base from 275,000 to 300,000 from 275,000 with its February issue.
The publication said in a statement that its revenue is up 70 percent this year across all brand platforms, while its advertising pages in the first 10 months of the year increased 23.9 percent to 1,005.56 from 811.72 pages for the same period in 2005.
